       hmmpress - prepare a profile database for hmmscan


       hmmpress [options] hmmfile


       Constructs  binary  compressed  datafiles  for  hmmscan,  starting from a profile database
       hmmfile in standard HMMER3 format.  The hmmpress step is required for hmmscan to work.

       Four files are created:  hmmfile.h3m,  hmmfile.h3i,  hmmfile.h3f,  and  hmmfile.h3p.   The
       hmmfile.h3m  file  contains the profile HMMs and their annotation in a binary format.  The
       hmmfile.h3i file is an SSI index for the hmmfile.h3m file.  The hmmfile.h3f file  contains
       precomputed  data  structures  for  the  fast  heuristic  filter  (the  MSV  filter).  The
       hmmfile.h3p file contains precomputed data structures for the rest of each profile.

       hmmfile may not be '-' (dash); running hmmpress on a standard input stream rather  than  a
       file is not allowed.


       -h     Help; print a brief reminder of command line usage and all available options.

       -f     Force; overwrites any previous hmmpress'ed datafiles. The default is to bitch about
              any existing files and ask you to delete them first.

       programs in the HMMER package.
